ENGIE Energy Access Nigeria has launched a ‘Going Green’ campaign – a Corporate Social Responsibility initiative to deepen awareness and knowledge of the benefits of green and clean environment on people and the ecosystem.  

The Going Green campaign is a CSR platform that was formally kick-started in partnership with the Goshen International School in Ikorodu, Lagos State, with a roadshow of ENGIE Energy Access Nigeria employees and students from the school, to raise awareness of the relevance of green energy, and taking the message to communities.

The campaign is also aimed at encouraging responsible behaviour towards the environment and to increase the knowledge of students and members of the public on alternative renewable energy solutions through providing correct information that enables them to adopt cost- and value-efficient energy solutions.

Other components of the Going Green initiative include the ‘Green March’ held on the 12th of November – a sanitation exercise where ENGIE Energy Access staff and Goshen International School students marched to the popular Ikorodu Garage to pick up dirt and keep the area clean and green. They were also sensitized on the need to keep their environment safe and conducive. Participants in the clean-up exercise were fully equipped with Personal Protective Equipment (PPEs) including jackets, hand gloves, face masks and hand sanitizers.
